Beyond Beauty Holiday 2007

The limited-edition Beyond Beauty Holiday 2007 Collection from Smashbox Cosmetics is designed to take your look beyond ordinary. Make a gal tickled-pink this Holiday by popping one of these in their stocking.

Fusion Eye & Cheek Palette
A sleek silver double-tiered mirrored palette that comes with a multi-hued Fusion Eye Shadow and Fusion Soft Lights Powder. Choose from Endless (warm shades) or Reflect (Cool Shades)

I have this one and love it. I sometimes use the cheek colours for my eyes too.


Light Speed Lip Gloss Collection
The collection contains 6 ultra-luxe sheer glosse that can be worn separately or layered together for a customized look.

Glare (shimmery bright pink)
Glide (shimmery peach nude)
Rush (shimmery pink blush)
Force (shimmery cool berry)
35MM (shimmery suede brown)
Illume (pale nude with iridescence)

I sadly do not have this collection of stunning glosses (sigh). I guess that is another item to put on my Santa Wish List!

Flawless Finish Skin Perfectors
This limited-edition set includes smashbox’s best-selling, skin-smoothing Photo Finish Foundation Primer in both full and travel sizes and Photo Op Under Eye Brightener to instantly wake skin up after a long holiday bash.

I have this kit and use all the items regularly. The Photo Op Under Eye Brightener is part of my everyday makeup routine and I use the Primer when I am preparing for that flawless look - could be for a meeting, event or evening out.

The Warm Winter Glow look uses the Beyond Beauty Collection. Below are the step by step instructions to achieve this simply gorgeous Holiday face.

For flawless skin, smooth Photo Finish Foundation Primer all over face.
Apply your shade of High Definition Healthy FX Foundation using Foundation Brush #13 from the Encounter Brush Kit.
For a luminous all-over glow, dust the light pearl cheek color from the Fusion Eye & Cheek Palette in Endless over face using Powder Brush #1.
Stay subtle with a sheer wash of color. Swirl through the four cheek colors in the Endless Palette with Powder Brush #1 and apply to the apples of cheeks.

Use Shadow Brush #26 to apply the bronze shadow from lash to brow, and repeat using the champagne shade.
Next sweep the copper shadow along the natural crease, whipping color up and out at the brow bone.
Brush the bronze shadow across the lower lashline and add a dab of champagne at the inner corners of the eye.
Finish the eyes with several lashings of Focal Point Mascara in Black on top lashes only. Before mascara dries, bat eyes gently to softly coat lower lashes.

Keep lips light and luscious with a dab of Light Speed Lip Gloss in Glide.

Hmmm I'm interested in the Flawless Skin Perfectors (lol, did I get the name right?) I've never really tried Smashbox before but I always always hear about their primer.

Hi Ellen,

Informative post and helpful review...thank you..and Smashbox has a lot of products like Smashbox Cosmetics photo finish color correcting foundation primer. It is available in three colors. Green color minimizes redness, apricot conceals under eye circles, veins and sunspots and lavender is used for natural yellow skin tones.
